Text Messages With A Purpose

The 6th Tool Motivational Text-Messages are a simple way to keep players on track and motivated, moving them in the direction to achieve their goals and aspirations! The text-messages are a foundational component to the building of 6th Tool Players. The weekly messages are aligned with the 3 Pillars of the 6th Tool Nation:

  1. Intent
  2. Culture
  3. Accountability


6th Tool Nation members will receive weekly text messages throughout the week. The information is a product of “CPD” Complete Player Development, teaching and developing the player’s “Mental Makeup!” The text messages received are original messages written by coach Trosky, all messages reinforce the 6th Tool Lifestyle!

  1. Post Game Texts:
  • When the game is over, ask the Right Questions. Instead of asking “Did we Win?” Ask, “How did I play the game (the Grinder, Dirtbag, Bulldog)? How did I respond to the game (the Rock)? & How did I prepare for the game (the Rat)!”
